NVC: SNES Classic, Pokemon Go’s Updates, and the Latest Switch Games We’re Playing – IGN

IGN’s Nintendo show talks SNES Classic, Pokemon Go, and new Switch games.

Peer jumps in for our dearly-departed host Jose (he’s alive and well, living in a treehouse up north) to host episode 362 of Nintendo Voice Chat, IGN’s weekly show for all things Nintendo.

He’s joined by Brian, Zach, Andrew, and Sam to celebrate the announcement of the SNES Classic — including its best and worst (if there is such a thing in this collection) games, and talk about the new and upcoming Pokemon Go updates, the latest game releases for Nintendo Switch, and what it’s like to meet grandmaster and end boss of video game design, Shigeru Miyamoto in person. As always, you can watch NVC here on IGN and on our YouTube channel or listen to it on your commute in audio format.
